The 100 Sheep Nativity

Our Taiwanese 3rd "daughter," Bun-Chu, spent plenty of time with us due to her parents ministry in Taiwan (her father is a Presbyterian minister). Bun-Chu knew I collected Nativities and decided that she'd make me one. Each year, she gave me new pieces to the Nativity. One day I was bemoaning the fact that most Nativities I get only have one sheep...and the Bible says it was a flock, ya know? So Bun-Chu, being the sweet little angel she is, made 100 sheep for MY Nativity. And 4 shepherds to watch that flock. So every Christmas, I have to find a place for 100 sheep. And I always do! LOL

The sheep...and the stockings because I have no mantel this year.

And the house, all lit up!

It's 4-something in the morning, and I can't sleep, so I thought it'd be a great time to hit the blogs I've not had time to see. Am glad I did - I didn't know about Emmy...she's adorable, Mer!

I still have recipes to send out from a Nov email from you - lol - that's how far behind I am. Think of you often, though.
